As part of the RVC acceleration activities, support is provided to their participants — project teams and companies mentoring, training, expert support, advice on obtaining financial support, as well as the selection of potential strategic investors. GenerationS is the most large-scale start-up accelerator in Russia and Eastern Europe, which has been conducted by RVC since 2013.
Since 2012, RVC has been creating new opportunities for high-growth high-tech companies, in particular, by forming the TechUspekh rating. As part of the rating, small and medium-sized Russian companies are identified annually, a kind of elite of the Russian innovative business, consistently demonstrating “above average” indicators in their industry. Thanks to the rating, these companies gained additional fame for the public, government bodies and large state corporations.
In 2016, the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia in partnership with RVC launched a priority project to support private high-tech leading companies (“National Champions”).
GenerationS is a federal accelerator of technology start-ups, in which the best projects, selected based on the results of a multi-stage assessment, receive intensive development and opportunities to attract new investment. GenerationS takes place in close cooperation with major Russian corporations, which are interested in finding promising innovative technologies and are ready to introduce and develop the "open innovation" tools in their companies.
Based on the TechUp rating, a comprehensive system for searching, diagnosing and identifying promising companies and projects of the National Technological Initiative (NTI) and ensuring faster growth of domestic private high-tech export-oriented leading companies (participants of the TechUp rating) are being created by including the implementation of a set of measures of direct support and consultation.
The purpose of the priority project of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia "Support for private high-tech leading companies" (National Champions) is to ensure the rapid growth of domestic private high-tech export-oriented companies, leaders in development rates, and assist in the formation of transnational Russian-based companies on their basis.
The export accelerator of the NTI companies is a unique program for preparing fast-growing technology companies to enter the Asian markets, conducted by RVC in a strategic partnership with PwC.
